10 Things to Learn From Kids

It's Friday--time for a grin--because a merry heart is like good medicine. So here are ten  things we can learn from our little ones. Enjoy this old email attributed to an anonymous mother in Austin, Texas.

A king-size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house four inches deep.

If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades they can ignite.

If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor isn't strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape.

You should not throw baseballs up to the ceiling when the ceiling fan is on.

A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long ways.

The glass in windows (even double pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

When you hear the toilet flush and the words "Uh-oh"--it's already too late.

A 6-year-old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year-old man says they can only do it in the movies.

The Austin, TX fire dept. has a remarkable response time!

Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year-old.

May you be spared from the Uh-ohs, baseballs and burning dust bunnies today!
